Potsdam Museum -
Memorial Lindenstraße 54/55

The memorial uniquely connects different types of political persecution with the history of overcoming the SED dictatorship during the peaceful revolution of 1989/90. Documentaries in the intact and authentic prison building inform visitors about the usage of the building during different periods of time, with a cell wing and prison yard open to the public.
Potsdam’s co-conspirators in the attempted assassination of Adolf Hitler are remembered at the memorial at Henning-von-Tresckow-Straße.
Both sites are part of the Potsdam Museum, which will move to its original location at the old city hall in 2012 to resume its role as a forum of art and history, with an extensive permanent exhibition presenting Potsdam’s manifold history.
